Fancy a deep fried Creme Egg this Easter?


If you’re in London this Easter weekend, and want an alternative to the traditional roast lamb with all the trimmings, pop by the FryHard pop-up cafe in Shoreditch’s Boxpark in the East End and choose from a menu of deep-fried treats.

Yes, that’s right. Every single thing on the menu, from a pancake to a pickled egg, is completely immersed in hot fat before it’s served up. If you’re not sure about this, you could always start small: a deep-fried Babybel comes in at £2. Or really embrace the deep-fried experience and order a full Sunday roast. It is Easter after all.

Here’s the menu in full:

FryHard is the brainchild of Messhead, a collaboration between “edgy” creative director Emma Thomas and “culinary renegade” James Thomlinson (aka Miss Cakehead and London Mess), who like to do strange things to their food and don’t give a damn about calories.

The FryHard pop-up will only be open from April 2 to April 5 so — if your arteries can take it — don’t miss out on your chance to sample some truly unusual deep-fried delights. The health nuts of the East End will be choking on their kelp smoothies…
